.DISCUSSION...A thermal trough will remain along the coast today then
build north along the coast Monday. A ridge of high pressure will
build inland on Monday. This will bring warm and dry conditions today.
Then a warming and drying is expected Monday through mid week. Winds
are expected to be out of the northwest today and will be breezy in the
afternoon. On Monday, expect breezy easterly winds to develop.

East winds will continue on Tuesday as the thermal trough remains
anchored along the Oregon coast. Moderate recoveries are expected on
ridges on Monday night and Tuesday morning. The warm and dry pattern
continues into Wednesday. Then an approaching low pressure system may
bring  a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms on Thursday. However
the best chances for showers or thunderstorms are south and east of
the burn area. Increasing chances for showers and thunderstorms are
expected on Friday.
